    So, long story short, I went to the Exodus dungeon. I have two questions:

    [​IMG]
    Were these things there before?
    And secondly,

    [​IMG]
    ...was this?

    It says it's a talking power crystal, but I tried a few arc-related words and couldn't make it say anything.

    Has anybody noticed any further plot activity since the publish?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's not somewhere I've been very often, but I don't remember seeing those before.

    Talking power crystal is not there in Europa but I don't remember any nexus there.

    Ah, finally someone else has been there.. This is what I didn't want to spoil just yet since it seems we are nowhere near interacting with the dungeon yet.

    The nexus are new and look a little bit like adult toys... :rolleyes2:

    There are more new structures in the eastern and southern rooms. They don't appear to be interactive (yet)

    I don't actually think we're meant to go there yet, but I'm an event area spelunker, I can't help it. :<

    I wasn't aware of the other new stuff, thanks for pointing it out! It's been a while since I was in Exodus before now so I wasn't sure what it looked like.

    (also now I can't unsee it goddamnit dildos with legs)

    Edit: if the area is still meant to be out-of-bounds and the dev team would prefer I not spoil the event, I can delete these posts.

    Edit 2: I can also tell you how I got there if you want to block it off. :] Just PM me if needed.

    They prematurely reopened it with Pub 75, instead of a mini publish right before the event(s) kicked off. They had to know that we would find it days in advance, so I'd say it's fair game. Nothing is active yet, so nobody has an advantage.

    Hmm interactive...not sure we can use those in the way you're thinking, there would be z-axis issues no? ;P

    Say this mantra "Iis awolly" where the power crystal is or at the spot if it hasn't yet appeared and you will have a nice surprise. :)

    Well, it looks like the path on Baja at least has been blocked off since I made that first post.

    I'm guessing that means we're not meant to be allowed in yet. Would anybody like me to remove the screenshots?

    damn, they blocked it off - what was the surprise when you say the mantra - can't get in there anymore to try it

    It's a shame nobody could get there to say it, i was hoping for a giggle on this april fools.

    "Iis a wolly" I is a wolly, a wolly being a jovial term for someone who says or does something silly here in Britain. :)

    Europa too, I was just there this morning after I saw your post to check the power crystal (not in Europa, but there was a keypunch reader, not sure if that was there before). That was a pretty quick response.

    the keypunch reader has been there since 5 minutes after pub 75 went in - it's the first place I went :)

    I tried by changing visibility and using teleport - got me almost thru. do I need to PM?
    It's also interesting to note that some things apply globally to all shards, and some have to be individually performed on each - well, except Siege, you get nuttin'

    i didn't see a chest on LS, back by the long table where the tall candles spawn. Like the added gate by the mountain climber, appears to be EM driven

    It is in fact active, it just takes killing the right critter to obtain the item needed to work with the Nexus. I have spent several days in Exodus dungeon now working with the Nexus and all of the required items are in game to do so. Hope that helps without giving to much away. Put on those thinking caps and good luck with it!

    I think you did good personally.
    If one looks at things that happened:
    Building blown up, scattered dead. This was planned, duh - does anybody really think they didn't have time to make the rock-slide, and it was an afterthought?
    'partial' blockage at entrances -> Fully Blocked. It might had been easier, for them, to simply extend the mountain across - RP going on for the climber quest.
    Gate (EM) to the east area - EM's don't make gates - approved sneak preview? Fan/Em sites get previews first, as should be.
    Teleporting Red Chest (EM) - Again, EM's don't make these - think a Dev would spoil their own plans, really?

    Letting the cat out of the bag, in stages, I believe was not only carefully planned, but planned well in advance of the actual events, with EM's cooperating of course.

    To say they weren't meant to be seen yet, that it was an 'accident'... do I really need to finish this sentence? There's big differences between approved preview and spoiler. No apology necessary, You, as others, were simply playing a part in what the Dev's knew you would do. I say Thanks for sharing, and being a part of UO and the community.

    Exodus comes back, breaks into Lord Blackthorn's Castle in Fel, and resurrects Lord Blackthorn...

    On Pac you still can get throuhg the barricade...just for info...stuff has been installed inside the dungeon, but nothing seems to be active yet - need a EM on Pacific to host the start maybe - guess he's on holiday or so...

    All in good time kiddies....

    Remember each shard is simular...but not the same, and takes time to set up. They were not kidding that the 15th year would be full of changes. Keep your eyes pealed and relax it will get there so keep your ears open and your eyes wide for all the goodies.:)

    I hope whatever it is isn't reserved for 15-year-vets and/or people who have no life outside of UO.

    wait! wait! wait!

    What is this life out outside of UO you speak of? Next thing you know you will be saying that the Earth is not the center of the Universe, that it is flat, and that EA cares about UO.

    Loyalty grind.

    Grave robber grind.

    *waits for the next arc-related grind*

    I think we're past that point, Tina. Well past. :confused:
